Abstract:The papers in this collection examine the development and implementation of social policy in South Africa during the first years of democratic government (1994-1999). In particular, they analyse whether and to what extent the postapartheid State has been able to achieve its stated goals in relation to its education policies. They also pay attention to the nature of the postapartheid transitional State, notably by reference to the question of equity.
